Living waters....our thirst for Jesus in Word and Sacrament

Farmer Ruth not prevented by her late term pregnancy out helping with the vaccinating of the calves.  It was a exciting thought to be having their new baby at the same time the cows would be having their calves.  Lots of new life, and lots of prayers and hard work around the clock as we watch Cow TV morning, noon and night.  The excitement is building as we are so close to welcoming our newest member of the family, and then our Hallel will come home for her first home visit in 4 years!
Lots of action as the cows are very protective of their calves and are big and on the heels of the men. 

It is already late in the day but the Gospel of the Samaritan woman at the well is filling us with so much!  Jesus shares with us the Truth so powerfully... from the preface to the Eucharistic prayer, which rang like a bell for us.."For when he asked the Samaritan woman for water to drink, he had already created the gift of faith within her and so ardently did he thirst for her faith, that he kindled in her a fire of divine love."  In the story you can just see her eyes and heart being opened and seeing Jesus... The Way, the Truth and the LIFE!
